We are navigating through the twists and turns of automotive security in this week’s Fish Fry podcast. Michael Dick (CEO – C2A Security) joins us for an in-depth discussion about the role software fluency plays in the realm of automotive security, the ongoing issues surrounding cybersecurity lifecycle management, and why Mike believes that without visibility we cannot have security.
Radiation in its various forms has long been the bane of the designers of electronic systems. Unfortunately, the effects of radiation become more insidious and pervasive as integrated circuit fabrication processes employ smaller and smaller structures. The problem is most acute in the case of FPGAs, which also have their configuration cells to contend with. Happily, a new fabrication process can dispel radiation-induced FPGA woes.

The city of Munich, Germany, is famous for two things: the annual Oktoberfest party (which is really in September) and as the headquarters of carmaker BMW. It also has large and leafy parks (with clothing-optional areas), views of the Alps, a 38-hour work … Read More → "DLC for BMW"
“While the camera does not express the soul, perhaps a photograph can!” – Ansel Adams
Highway signs flicker. We just don’t notice it.
This was one of the takeaways from a long discussion about camera sensors for automotive applications. Cars have cameras in them now, some outward facing and some inward facing. … Read More → "Automotive Cameras Avoid the Pedestrian"
In this week’s podcast we have a bubbling virtual witches brew of electronic engineering creativity that is one part analog, three parts IP, with a big ol’ heap full of intelligent decision making. Gajinder Panesar (UltraSoC) and Tim Ramsdale (Agile Analog) join us to discuss the what UltraSoC’s digital monitoring ecosystem IP is all about, the changing role of analog IP in the world of … Read More → "Better Hints and Less Misses: A New Holistic Approach to Hardware-Based SoC/ASIC Cybersecurity"
The upshot: New technologies can help to protect the integrity of components in safety-critical systems (and others). Those same technologies could threaten free markets.
Our literature racks are full of stories about well-meaning technologies with a dark side. Those technologies make it into the light because of the benefits they provide. That dark side… well, somehow it never … Read More → "Will Automotive OEMs Take Full Control?"
